Concord, Calif. – Beginning next Monday, August 22nd the County Connection’s Free Ride trolley schedule will be adjusted to run later on Monday-Friday evenings. The trolley runs between the Walnut Creek BART station, the downtown shopping district, and the Broadway Plaza. And, as the name implies – it’s free to the riders.
Service will be less frequent in the early morning hours before the shops open when there are fewer riders. Then, starting at 8:25 AM and continuing until 6:55 PM, the trolley will run every 15 minutes. There will be four trips after 6:55, which will run on 35 minute intervals. The last trolley will leave Walnut Creek BART at 9:15 PM, and the last trolley will leave the fountain in Broadway Plaza at 9:30 PM.
County Connection Board Member and Walnut Creek Mayor Pro Tem Bob Simmons comments:
This ‘feathering’ of service hours allows the City to gain the four evening trips without additional cost. This gives shoppers, employees, diners and residents extra time to enjoy all that downtown Walnut Creek has to offer. I wish to thank County Connection and our City staff for coming up with such a creative approach to extend this important service without additional cost.
In addition to the Walnut Creek Free Ride Trolley, County Connection provides fixed route and paratransit service throughout central Contra Costa County. For information on its other transit services, please call County Connection Customer Service 676-7500 or visit cccta.org.
